Master Gardener Rose Garden


The Rose Garden features examples of various rose types, including: Damask, Floribundas, Ground Covers, Hybrid Teas, Hybrid Rugosas, Miniatures Roses, Noisettes, Shrub Roses and Climbers. Master Gardeners hold an annual yard sale to fund new purchases.

Roses grown in the Mojave tend to have few diseases, but must be well watered and mulched in order to withstand high temperatures and drying winds. Lush spring blooms and a second flush in the autumn make roses a good choice for landscape color.

Master Gardeners tend the roses doing seasonal pruning, fertilizing, mulching and maintenance. They are "In the Gardens" on Monday mornings twice each month and invite the public to view demonstrations and ask questions. Contact the Master Gardener Help Desk (702-257-5555) for monthly dates and times.
